Thank You Chalkboards for Teachers

Well, after a really busy week I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel! 
One of the reasons I was so busy is because it is the last week of school, so a teacher thank you cards were needed! Keiran's class in Reception has 2 fab teachers and 2 great teaching assistants, so I thought they should have special cards. 

I have seen lots of little chalkboard easel style cards, so I thought I would have a go at one...

...or four!

I wrote the teachers' names on the back of each card with chalk, then to fix it, I sprayed them with hairspray.

The wood effect was made using the woodgrain stamp, and each vertical strip is 1.5cm wide by 14cm long, the horizontal strips are 1.5cm by 7cm. The black card base starts out as an A6 tent fold.

I stamped my sentiment using Vintage Verses (SAB, retired) and Sweet Essentials with a Whisper White Craft pad. The little tags are created using various punches, washi tape and a cheeky monkey stamp!

Cardstock - Basic Black, Crumb Cake
Stamps - Vintage Verses, Zoo Babies, Sweet Essentials, Woodgrain Background Stamp
Ink - Basic Black, Whisper White
Punches/Dies - Chalkboard Framelits, Jewellery Tag, Petite Curly Label
Ribbon - Stitched Grossgrain, Linen Thread
Other - Gingham Garden Washi Tape
